benched on fox news. and the real action of barack obama has sent the republican party into total disarray. >> that's what i'm talking about. >> congressman jim clyburn of south carolina and eugene robinson on the latest republican fiasco. >>> plus, congressman chris van hollen on john boehner's latest concession on the fiscal cliff. michael eric dyson and donna gentile-o'donnell on the political fallout. howard dean on chris christie's big decision on the obama care exchange. and apple's ceo breaks big news to nbc's brian williams. >> next year, we will do one of our existing mac lines in the united states. >> tonight, a story of economic patriotism in an era of bain capital with e.j. dionne. good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. the reality of the election is start to set in on members of the republican party. republican senator jim demint of south carolina is leaving capitol hill to become president of the heritage foundation. don't cry for demint. the out-going president of the heritage foundation made $1.1 million according to 2010 tax filings. demint will do j
obama is taking his fiscal cliff plan to the people. will republicans buckle under public pressure? msnbc's political analyst michael eric dyson and democratic strategist donna gentile-o'donnell will weigh in on that tonight. >>> welcome back to "the ed show." president obama has put house speaker john boehner and republicans in a box on fiscal cliff negotiations. and the evidence is mounting. president obama stayed on offense today, visiting the santana family in northern virginia whose taxes will go up more than $4,000 in 2013 if middle class tax cuts aren't extended. >> i'm encouraged to see that there's been some discussion on the part of republicans acknowledging the need for additional revenue. as i've indicated, the only way to get the kind of revenue for a balanced deficit reduction plan is to make sure that we're also modestly increasing rates for people who can afford it. folks like me. just to be clear, i'm not going to sign any package that somehow prevents the top rate from going up for folks at the top 2%. >> the concerted effort from the white house is very clear. he
to handle the fiscal cliff? 48% believe president obama and republicans will reach an agreement but 43% say they won't. meantime, president obama is giving a stern warning to republicans who may be trying to use the debt ceiling as leverage. >> if congress in any way suggests that they're going to tie negotiations to debt ceiling votes and take us to the brink of default once again as part of a budget negotiation, which by the way we have never done in our history until we did it last year, i will not play that game. >> we should say that the president and house speaker john boehner did speak by phone yesterday. that was the first time in a week. no one is saying what the conversation was about. shortly after that call treasury secretary tim geithner went on cnbc and said the white house is ready to go off the cliff. >> if republicans do not agree to that, is the administration prepared to go over the fiscal cliff in. >> absolutely. there's no prospect to an agreement that doesn't involve those rates going up on the top 2% of the wealthiest. it's only 2%. >> i want to bring in "usa today" b
. if we are going to save america, republicans are the only ones to stop obama's radical agenda on the economy. similarly, we need to know our elections are free and fair. you believe you were cheated in this election? >> well, i would just quote the supervisor of elections from st. lucie county. when they sent up the supervised results, they said they knew they had regulators in the certified results. the certified results they sent up to st. lucie county were different from the election night results. furthermore, a box of 306 ballots were not included in the certified results. as well as in palm beach county the supervisor of election extended early voting to a sunday, which was against the law that was supposed to have ended the early voting on saturday. no one was able to understand to track the absentee ballots issued out. so if we do not have integrity of our voting process, if the american people lose trust and confidence, we become nothing more than a zimbabwe, and you don't have the confidence in the government. >> sean: what is the future for colonel west? you served
is with the president. >> republicans are totally over the barrel. >> did you say over? >> they should give in to obama on the tax rate? >> nothing is over until we decide it is! >> we didn't elect them to raise rate. >> not me! >> we don't have a revenue problem. >> i'm not going to take this. >> when are you going to fight? >> let's do it! >> how is that winning? that isn't winning. >> i don't think republicans will win. >> south carolina senator jim demint -- >> jim demint says he is resigning. >> his surprise announcement to step down. >> i think i'm in a more powerful position. >> are you kidding me? >> he doesn't have a law to his name. >> he has been a singular failure as a political strategist. >> i think i'm in a more powerful position. >> the disarray of the republican party. >> there is no progress. >> they don't know what they stand for. >> no progress. >> they don't know what to do. >> no progress. >> they have some real soul-searching to do. >> today the united states supreme court -- >> the supreme court used this afternoon -- >> said they would take up the issue of same-sex marriage. >>
and as difficult as the situation was for president obama, those heavyweights within the republican party saw the writing on the wall, that it was going to be a very difficult race for even the best candidate, so they all held their fire for possibly 2016, so that's why you're seeing people talk about jeb bush and others. i left chris christie out of that mix as someone people were hoping would run, a strong candidate who would run in '12. that's why you're hearing the names come out now. jo ama >> amazing. newt gingrich, a man who knows a thing or two about the ladies, says hillary clinton would be close to unbeatable if she close to run. do you think we're looking at bush versus clinton in 2016? >> i think the picture on the democratic side this far out, there's a little more clarity to it -- there's a lot more clarity than the republican side. if hillary clinton were to run in 2016 there are obviously no guarantees in life or politics, but within the democratic party for the democratic nomination, she will be a front-runner like we have never seen before. and i know we sort of said that ab
states was carol moseley-braun and the second one was barack obama. the history of the republican party has always been that of freedom for all people and that's what we try to convey in our movie and we are very successfully doing that, "the runaway slave." that's the message. >> reverend, excuse me one second. >> mayor, there's been a lot of talk about how the hispanic vote has helped the president win votes like florida and nevada. but what's been less talked about is how the african-american vote gave the president higher totals in states like georgia as well as mississippi. when you hear what the reverend has to say in regard to the democratic party modern day, do you agree with what he's saying? >> if this weren't such a serious topic, his comments would be laughable. the president won a minority groups across the boar, not on latinos but asians. but he did it because all of these people are very smart and they understood who had their interests at heart and who didn't. what we know from the reverend's comments and other people's comments such as john boehner and other republican
: that number has not moved. people are saying obama is reasonable boehner and the republicans unreasonable. easy got to make a deal in that sense, too. they're going to do the grand bargain. both sides are really, really motivated. both sides are super motivated. now really good piece of news about elizabeth warren. >> she was named to the bank committee. two senators retiring in january announced they're retirements. they were on the bank committee. the bank spent a lot of money to see her not get elected spent a lot of lobbying power to see her not named the the committee. remember, $3 million were given to scott brown by bankers in that campaign, $245,000 only to warren. >> they knocked her out of the consumer protection bureau, which was her idea. she just wants safe banking. she doesn't want banking she wants safer banking so your money is safe and they don't gamble with it. that's why the banks hate it. >> it's why smaller banks are not opposed to warren. >> that's a great point. i love that they put mention in there, hey banks we have to put elizabeth warren, but don't worry, we're
that president obama is in a strong position in this nation's fight for fairness. and republicans are on the losing end of this fight. now, new polls show 65% of americans believe the president does have a mandate to raise taxes on the wealthy. 62% say he's got a mandate to protect medicare. and 64% says he's got a mandate to protect social security. that is a winning hand. the president has it and he knows it. >> i'm pretty confident that republicans would not hold middle class taxes hostage to try to protect tax cuts for high income individuals. >> and get this. 160 ceos from america's biggest companies are also now saying it's time to raise taxes on the rich. but, speaker john boehner is sticking to his talking points; at least publically. he's refusing to budge. >> the longer the white house slow walks this discussion, the pa closer we get to this year's fiscal close. >> boehner can blame the president all he wants. the reality is americans want to compromise. a new nbc wall street journal shows 65% want both sides to come together and make a deal. but that's not what's been h
's up to the republicans. >> let's talk about the negotiations themselves. president obama and the house speaker spoke for a short time yesterday. nobody knows exactly what they said. and president obama is going to talk to a family in virginia, sort of a deal to get -- why don't both sides go to camp david, lock themselves behind closed doors and come up with a deal? why a pr stunt, visiting voters when that's not going to get a deal done with republicans. >> i certainly would welcome that. i think most americans would. i think what the white house is doing -- and i think it's smart -- making sure that this conversation stays where it should be, with the middle class. the white house has been raising this point. they have this #my2k, explaining to republicans and the country, we can't afford for $2,000 more to hit our tax bill. it's important for the american people to stay engaged and the white house has to keep the american people engaged and this family will be speaking for a lot of people. it doesn't make any sense, even the polls show that the wealthy are willing to pay more taxes.
president obama. this guy's totally shameless right, about being an arm of the republican party. doesn't this sort of prove it? >> i mean it shows that he's -- he's just interested in impacting the republican party and getting his guy in the ring than fox is about covering it. it has been reported before that roger urged chris christie to run and then there was a report in 2011 that he had urged petraeus. but this recording really takes it to another level because although casey mcfarland and -- they say it was a joke, you can hear her on the recording over and over again you know trying to get information to bring back to roger. it is not like it was just a quick joke at the end of an interview. she asks repeatedly. they talk about would murdoch bankroll it and maybe petraeus was sort of brushing some of it off. but at the same time it seemed like she was really trying to get information to give back to roger who for their own belief, wanted petraeus to run. >> bill: the fact is though, this sort of proves the
in the campaign. they are issues that toneds to get heated and can give the republicans an opportunity to paints obama and the democratic as liberal which doesn't always work in a general election and can work to the benefit of the other side. it does seem as though immigration will be the issue of next year once fiscal cliffs negotiating are over, if ever. we've heard from a number of republicans who think that immigration reform might be easier to achieve this time. as you may recall, in 2006 and 2007 we had heated debates on that topic. but at this point, after an election where the republicans lost the latino votes by a large number they would like to see immigration reform pass in some way and they are going to approach it differently this time. >> we apologize for the live signals but we were talking about the immigration and the issue of global warming. did you want to finish your thoughts? >> sure. i want to say what is right for vermont, massachusetts, may not be right for virginia. having said that, we believe and i believe strongly that climate change is the biggest single challenge t
barack obama, trying to win that will truly be the super bowl and the republican party today is incapable of competing at that level. >> that's a strong statement, but not entirely inaccurate. she will be a formidable candidate if the economy is improving and they get a budget deal. look, three times in a row, very rare, george bush, ronald reagan, last time it happened. nothing is given, but given the demog r demography, her appeal would be formidable. >> the republican party in four years, hopefully more competitive. governors getting their sfripz. marco rubbo and paul ryan, reframing the republican party. is it possible there could be a new republican party in four years? i certainly hope so. we'll see. >> i have been waiting for this all along. newt gingrich, saying hillary clinton formidable. my god. >> i believe hell has frozen over and cats and dogs now getting together. >> i want hillary to run. i'm excited. >> still ahead, on "starting point" we'll talk about my documentary that aired last night. what it means to be black in america. my new doc looked at racial identity. the cont
. >> house republican leaders are pressing president obama to come up with a plan they can accept for spending cuts and tax revenues to avoid the so called fiscal cliff. time is running out now for both parties to reach a compromise. we have the latest. >> the deadline to avoid the fiscal cliff is december 316789 lawmakers have less time if they want get something together that congress can pass and the president can sign. >> the longer the white house road blocks this discussion, closer our economy gets to the fiscal cliff. >> in an interview, the president was optimistic a deal can be reached. >> i'm confident republicans would not hold middle class taxes hostage to try to protect tax cuts for high income individuals. >> monday night, white house sent speaker boehner on offer including $1.2 trillion in new revenue. yesterday, boehner sent a counter proposal back but looked almost exactly like their original plan. $800 in new revenue continues to be the sticking point. tax rates on the top earners. republicans insist the white house gives them specifics on the cuts the president
listened to republicans say we can't wait to repeal obama care, and the insurance exchanges. well, where does a person turn if they are 65 years of age and the medicare eligibility age is 67? they have two years there where they may not have the best of health. they need accessible, affordable medical insurance during that period. >> congressman, is there a deal by january 1? and if there are tax increases as part of a deal, on tax rates, is there a republican civil war that's going to start? >> the president says he wants tax rate because he wants revenue. republicans already offered him the revenue. the president also says he wants a balanced approach. that means 2 1/2 to 3 times as many spending cuts as there are two revenue. we have spent all of this time talking about revenue. but as we watched, our government continued to spend more. this is really about spending. you listen to the senator right there, he doesn't want to move on spending. and that's the core of the problem. i don't think republicans or americans want to raise any taxes just to continue the spending in washington. t
popular president barack obama, trying to win that will be truly the super bowl. and the republican party today is incapable of competing at that level. and it's part of this cultural thing with our consultants. you start out thinking giving away 47% of the country, by the way, which included retirees, veterans. you know, it was an absurdity. and i think this is much more than mitt romney. we didn't blow it because of mitt romney. we blew it because of a party which has refused to engage the reality of american life and refused to take -- to think through what the average american needs for a better future. >> but recall what you said about 1964. in december 1964, lyndon johnson was re-elected. goldwater was finished. it was the end of the republican party. and at the end, the republicans nominated a man named richard nixon. and he became president. unthinkable. >> so you can have a tcampaign between hillary clinton and jeb bush, representing 36 years of bushes on national tickets. and i think 38 years of the clintons at state or federal government. >> back to the future. what about chris

the address, obama accuses house republicans of blocking a bill that would prevent a tax increase on the middle class. the democratic controlled senate has approved a plan. o obamas as a house bill lores rates for the wealthiest americans, instead of raising them as he has proposed. >> this is the only way to put our economy without asking more. this is the only plan that i am willing to sign. >> for the gop, florida senator marco rubio says tax increases will not solve the nation's 16 trillion dollar debt. he says the only way to do that is through economic growth and reform of entitlement programs. rubio says that limited government can help restore the middle class. >> be extra careful of side due to the fog. this is a view from our mt. tam and there is fog in the midst of clouds. it is partly cloudy. it is mostly sunny conditions for the afternoon. clear skies are expected for the afternoon. it take a look at the yellow on your spring this is where the dense fog advisory has been issued. this is set to expire about 11:00 a.m.. napa as well as fairfield are affected by this den
